Craig Dworkin

For Ceptuetics' last show, Craig Dworkin provided insight into some of the social and technological issues surrounding conceptual poetics  and addressed his editorial choices for the UbuWeb Anthology of Conceptual Writing and a forthcoming book co-edited with Kenneth Goldsmith, Against Expression. He read from his most recent book, Parse (Atelos), and discussed the place of subjectivity in this text and other "uncreative" works.

Craig will be interviewing Vito Acconci at the Bronx Museum on Saturday at 3pm (North Wing, 2nd Floor). Scroll down from here for more info.

Brad Flis

Brad Flis reads from his book Peasants, which will soon be released by Patrick Lovelace Editions. He shares a few other poems and talks with me about the union of disparate historical moments in his writing, the pressure to generate ethically 'responsible' work, and questions of clarity and censorship in poetry.

He'll be reading at the Poetry Project with Patrick Durgin on Monday 10/20 at 8pm.

Tracie Morris and Tan Lin

Tan Lin reads (with me) from Plagiarism/Outsource, a project that chronicles Heath Ledger's death through SMS messages and RSS feeds. We talk about the technological provisions for ambient writing with multiple subjectivities, Tan's strategy of re-writing news stories by inserting himself into the work, the genres of autobiography and the novel, duration, and Warhol & disco as post-medium moments.

Tracie Morris airs audio pieces - "Get It, Got It," a collaboration with Elliott Sharp, and "Gallery" - and reads from a collaboration with Charles Bernstein, "Truth Be Told." We talk about poetry's potential for political intervention as we receive word on the economic crisis, and discuss language use in the 2008 election, speech act theory, and collaboration. File is strangely reverb-y.

Jen Bervin

Apologies to those who tried to catch Jen Bervin's reading/interview streaming at or iTunes -- WNYU's still in the midst of a move and doesn't have working Internet yet. Here's the show to download. Jen read from her latest book, The Desert (Granary Books, 2008), and talked about sewing-through John Van Dyke's work, her book's air, and the new readers & writers of the desert.
